This idea was created in 2010 in of honor Katie Goldman, a 7 year old from Illinois, who was teased for her interest in science fiction, Star Wars and fantasy. The teasing became so intense that Katie wanted to conform to others’ interests just so the teasing would stop. Katie’s mom began blogging to ask for help to deal with her daughter’s dilemma. Thousands of responses came in to aid Katie’s mom and support Katie’s individuality. Since then, Katie’s school has held a Proud to Be Me Day to foster expression of unique abilities and interests. Likewise, Methacton School District counselors feel strongly about encouraging differences and celebrating uniqueness and will dedicate a week to celebrating this theme with special dress-up days and activities to promote diversity and acceptance.
